Research output: Contribution to conferenceConference AbstractProfessional


Wave power is a potential technology for producing cost-efficient renewable energy. Reliability is one of the key issues to be considered in the design of wave energy converter (WEC) devices. To address the issue of reliability, we present a proposed design approach based on reliability block diagram (RBD) modeling. Based on experiences of utilizing the RBD approach, we provide some preliminary insights on the key characteristics of the RBD approach and its suitability to WEC design.
